Executive Leadership

Coreen Dicus-Johnson

President and CEO

Network Health

Having experience at both a health insurance company and a health care system, Coreen Dicus-Johnson is no stranger to the challenges these organizations face when trying to control costs without sacrificing care quality.

Her unique experiences led her to Network Health, a health insurance company owned by two health systems — Ascension Wisconsin and Froedtert Health. Dicus-Johnson entered her role as chief executive officer in 2016 and was immediately challenged to lead a financial turnaround.

She helped the company beat its financial plan by $1.3 million in her first year. Today, Network Health has 136,000 members and reported $798 million in revenue in 2017.

Dicus-Johnson credits much of Network Health’s recent successes to the clinical integration team managing member populations. Bringing providers and clinicians together to design and implement plans ensures members get the care they need.

“I take great pride in knowing I have a dedicated team who wants to provide the best quality of care to the communities that we serve,” she says.

Dicus-Johnson is an active member of several boards, including the Wisconsin Association of Health Plans, Waukesha County Community Foundation, YMCA of the Fox Cities, JP Cullen Advisory Council, Town Bank and Ha Ha’s HERO Executive Board Foundation. She also serves on committees for CEOs Against Cancer, LUNG Force Oxygen Ball and the Sojourner Family Peace Center.
